There Are No Black Bloggers in Harlem or New York City.

NYC, 16.09.2006 16:38

At least judging by the recent photograph of a special "local blogger" event hosted by Bill Clinton.

Liza Sabater writes: "These are the 20 liberal bloggers that just met with Bill Clinton in Harlem. As you can see, not one of them is black or latino. At least to Peter Daou and the DailyKos crowd. Needless to say, I do not know what to make of this." [Read More at Daily Gotham]

Mt. Ashland Hike on Venita Varga's 70th B-day

Rogue Valley, 16.09.2006 14:09

September 6, 2006 was my 70th birthday and I choose to accompany a group of 13 people of all ages, led by Eric Navickas, on the proposed Ski Expansion at Mt. Ashland site.

As a long-time peace and environmental activist, I wanted to do something memorable for my 70tht. It was. Many of the younger people with me actually helped, assisted and encouraged me on the splendid, enlightening and incredible trek throughout a five-hour hike with almost no trails at all. Exhausted but happy and proud of our accomplishment, we fourteen parted at EVO's at 5:00 pm where we had met and left at 9:00 am.

I am infinitely greatful to the Universe that our beautiful Mt. Ashland watershed was still there for me to enjoy...may it continue to be there for all our descendants.

Protests Increase in August

Portland, 16.09.2006 08:38

You are probably all aware that Code Pink had a hugely successful "Bring the Troops Home Fast" campaign in DC where many people fasted to bring the troops home "FAST". They were noticed by the Iraqi government officials visiting Washington, DC and even invited to Iraq to propose ideas on how to do just that!

August 6th of course, saw a plethora of demonstrations around the world as it is the anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing: Lockhead Martin, Bechtel, Raytheon, Livermore Nuclear Weapons Lab, "events taking place in over 70 cities in 27 states, culminating on August 9th, the anniversary of the Nagasaki bombing, under the banner, "From Hiroshima to Yucca Mountain to the Middle East: No Nukes! No Wars! End War Profiteering! Support Indigenous Rights!" A major focus of the demonstrations was Bechtel Corporation, one of the largest beneficiaries of both the Iraq war and all things nuclear."

Fairford 'Disarmers' Trial Ends With 'No Clear Verdict'

Bristol, 15.09.2006 17:38

Retrial To Take Place Next Week Press Release: A judge at Bristol Crown Court has ordered a re-trial in the case of two peace activists charged with damaging military equipment to stop planes taking off. After a day and a half of debate, the jury failed to reach any clear verdict. Paul Milling and Margaret Jones are charged with conspiracy to commit criminal damage after disabling several dozen bomb carrying and fuel vehicles at RAF Fairford in March 2003. They were attempting to hinder take-off of 14 B-52 planes to bomb Iraq at the start of the 2003 invasion. Milling and Jones say this was a bid to delay the planes’ departure for Baghdad and give more people time to flee the city – thus protecting property and helping to prevent war crime. The trial begins next week at the same court, of Phil Pritchard and Toby Olditch, charged with conspiracy to commit criminal damage for trying to reach and disable a B-52 bomber at Fairford. Full Press ReleaseExtra Background: The trial of Margaret Jones and Paul Milling were the first of 3 trials, of 5 defendants, known as the 'Fairford 5'. Paul Milling and Margaret Jones, Josh Richards, Phillip Pritchard and Toby Olditch (left to right) all tried to prevent or delay the take-off of American B-52 bombers from Fairford air force base in Gloucestershire. (Image: The 'Fairford 5' outside the Court Of Appeal in June 2004, as part of their attempt to have the right to argue that the Iraq war is illegal recognised as part of their defence. In April 2006, this defence was denied by the House Of Lords. They said - the crime of attacking another nation is a crime in international law, but cannot be said to be part of British domestic law.

Zimbabweans in Leeds to demonstrate against forced deportation

United Kingdom, 15.09.2006 17:08

Zimbabweans from across Leeds and the region will join forces with campaigners this Saturday to demonstrate against the resumption of deportations of refused asylum seekers back to Mugabe's regime in Zimbabwe. The protest, called by the Zimbabwe Refugee Community Organisation starts outside Leeds Central Library, Headrow at 12pm, and has the backing of the Refugee Council (Yorkshire and Humberside), campaign group Leeds No Borders, trade unionists, local MPs and asylum seekers from other countries.

The demonstration has been called following a legal ruling in August that 'refused' asylum seekers no longer automatically face persecution if returned to Zimbabwe - despite the UK government's own very public condemnation of human rights abuses by the Mugagbe regime. These Zimbabweans now face the possibility of imminent deportation. Only last Wednesday in Zimbabwe, the country's main trade union leader was arrested by police for attempting to hold a demonstration which the government had earlier banned. Wellington Chibebe was beaten with batons and rifle butts as the police arrested him and 15 others. Zimbabweans are not alone - the Home Office has recently stepped up its efforts to forcibly remove asylum seekers en masse back to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Erfolgreicher Schlag gegen die Privatsphäre

Germany, 15.09.2006 10:39

Offenbar verlieren die deutschen Strafverfolgungsbehörden inzwischen auch den letzten Hauch von Rücksicht auf die Privatsphäre von Internetnutzern. Gestern beschlagnahmte die Polizei auf Anweisung der Staatsanwaltschaft Konstanz bundesweit bei sieben Internet-Server-Hosting-Providern mehr als zehn dedizierte Mietserver oder Teile davon, was deren weiteren Betrieb vorübergehend oder immer noch unmöglich macht. Und das, obwohl den Strafverfolgern vorab schon bekannt war, dass die beschlagnahmten Anonymisierungsserver keineswegs zur Sammlung von Indizien oder Beweisen taugen.

Greg Pallast Charged with Journalism

Portland, 15.09.2006 05:08

It's true. It's weird. It's nuts. The Department of Homeland Security, after a five-year hunt for Osama, has finally brought charges against ... Greg Palast. I kid you not. Send your cakes with files to the Air America wing at Guantanamo. Though not just yet. Fatherland Security has informed me that television producer Matt Pascarella and I have been charged with unauthorized filming of a "critical national security structure" in Louisiana.

UPDATE --> on Sept 14 2006: from Greg Pallast website (( http://www.gregpalast.com/ )) (quote) Forget the orange suit. Exxon Mobil Corporation, which admits it was behind the criminal complaint brought by Homeland Security against me and television producer Matt Pascarella, has informed me that the oil company will no longer push charges that Pascarella and I threatened "critical infrastructure."

[Prisons] Just a Mother's Curiosity

Portland, 15.09.2006 04:15

The California Department of Corrections and rehabilitation is conducting a survey to determine how many inmates would be interested in transferring to facilities outside of California. My son is serving a 25 to life prison term in Delano, CA. He just sent me the notice of the survey and has askied me to check out some of the other prisons and see what they have to offer... He has been in prison for 4 years now and but I still don't understand the way they are run. Comments:

I will forward your question on to a friend of mine who might have some answers. In the meantime, I think we all need to be thinking about how to make prisons better, or nonexistent. I don't know, sometimes I think there are reasons to remove people from general society, if they are dangerous or something. You know, like child killers and rapists. But the criminal justice system is so completely flawed that it's not fair ... (Drug use, for example, is a public health issue not a crinimal issue. Theft is a class issue, not a criminal issue. And all the green scare people are political prisoners, not criminals.)

One concern should be whether they are talking about moving folks to private detention facilities. It seems very likely that would be the case, since moving people to other state-run prisons would just shift the "burden", and most state-run prisons are over-full. Private prisons are hell, from every account I've ever heard. They are profitable due mostly to slave labor of the inamtes, moreso than at state or federal facilities. They are usually very remote, which makes visitation hard. They have ridiculous phone contracts that make phone calls too expensive for most people to afford. I would do some serious checking, and if they are talking about private prisons, I would be VERY concerned. [ Read More ]

Local VfP Member Urges Portland City Council to Pass Impeachment Resolution

Portland, 15.09.2006 00:08

Vietnam veteran Mike Hastie, former vice president of Portland's Veterans for Peace organization and VfP activist, urged the Portland City Council to pass an impeachment resolution at the public portion of Wednesday morning's council meeting. The national VfP organization has twice (2003, 2005) voted to impeach Bush and Cheney, et al., , most recently for violations of the military portions of the Sixth Amendment.
[...]
Hastie's testimony cited the consequences of the Iraq war from parallels to the Vietnam war. The VfP's national position is that the Iraq war is illegal. In the allotted three minutes, he used experiences as a medic in Vietnam and statements by Iraq returnees to support his statements about the negative impact on the military in both conflicts in terms of tactical, physical, and mental results.

About your &quot;responsibility&quot; to take certain drugs

Portland, 14.09.2006 22:38

You have seen them. The ads for drugs targeting depression, anxiety, herpes, arthritis, and all the others where you are made to believe that your illness is inconveniencing others. How dare you continue to suffer from this, and subject others to it, when all you need is this very expensive drug full of disconcerting side effects? "Who does depression hurt," we are asked. Then we are shown a sobering array of dark, suffering individuals who are paying for your sin, the sin of depression. Everyone from your spouse to your children to yes, even your dog. "Haven't you thought about THEM" reads the unspoken subtext. "You might not think you need medication, but how could you be so inconsiderate toward THEM?"

NYC, 14.09.2006 21:38

On Tuesday, Sept. 19, President Bush will be speaking at the United Nations as part of an election-year public-relations push on his disastrous Iraq War. The New York City Police Department has refused to grant a permit to United for Peace and Justice to march anywhere near the United Nations. Based on feedback from our member groups and supporters, we have come to a decision: We are marching anyway. Permit or no permit, we will stand up against this immoral war and for our right to dissent.
